Last Day of July

I read about a little monthly round up at this blog: Scrapbook Lady. I thought I would give it a try. I thought it was a fabulous idea.

So here is my wrap up of July:
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?
Well, for those of you who don't know....I am a reality show junkie! I love them all. I watch: Nashville Star...(I liked the young blonde that just recently went home. So now I am hoping for Melissa Lawson..(I think that is her name) to win. I watch Life of an American teenager. I really like this one. Although with 2 young girls it really scares me. It is funny to see John Snyder from the Dukes of Hazard married to Jane (from Melrose Place....okay I am really dating myself now!) I watch the mole....although I don't know why, I am not really caring for this one. I watch....So YOu Think YOu Can Dance....and I was sooooo sad to see William go home. He was just awesome. I really liked Carrington too. I am hoping Twitch wins, although I really like almost all of them. I watch Army Wives...I am really loving this show. Finally, I watch Big Brother...this is my biggest guilty pleasure...I even have the showtime afterdark....should I really admit that? LOL. I DVR all of them and I am wayyyyy behind because I can't possibly watch them when they are on...too much to watch...tooo little time!!!
What special days did I celebrate and how?
For the fourth we went to Toledo with my family to visit Don's family. We also stayed at a Doubletree in Dearborn for 2 nights. We went swimming with the girls. I also went to MGM casino with my parents.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
My grandmother is going through a lot right now. She is having some breathing issues and pains.
What fun things did I do with my friends and/or family?
I went to see my friend's new baby Emma. I also got together with Patience and her children.
What new foods, recipes or restaurants did I try this month?
I tried a grasshopper cake. I will be making it again. I also tried a picante chicken that was really good.
What special or unusual purchases did I make?
we bought a dishwasher and a kitchen table.
What were this month's disappointments?
I get pretty discouraged trying to get this weight off.
What were my accomplishments this month? I started back to the gym. I am going 3 days a month. I didn't lose anything, but I am not going to get discouraged!
Anything else noteworthy to record?

More Tada Creations using the New Lines for CHA summer 08

This layout is of my youngest daughter, Shay at 6 months. This line from Tada Creative Studios is my very favorite of the new releases. It is so versatile. Each one of the circle pages can be used for lots of different layouts.

This is an example of Tada's new trifold card kits. I layered 3 of the chipboard pieces with different papers from the fa la la collection.

This album is from LaserLine it is the autumn plain jane album. I painted the front with a little bit of paper from the Tea Hee Hee collection. This is not a new collection from Tada, but it was perfect for this album. I also used the ring around stamp from Tada on top of the paint.
